PPR339 Elections, Voters and Political Parties
Tutor: Dr Martin Steven
This module focuses on the most fundamental component of democratic political systems – party politics. In particular, it analyses key political behaviour issues related to models of voting, party organisation and public policy. It adopts a broadly comparative approach, with an emphasis on advanced industrial democracies in the west – especially the United Kingdom, but also other parts of Europe and the United States.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
• Assess the merits of the different models of voting behaviour
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.
